    The OP is correct. His initial listing said SP-135T, so I made the correction based on that. But, sure enough, his older SP-130T is a 230V machine. Odd.

    Either way, the 240V receptacle issue was settled.

    you can run that, and have someone else welding with a suitcase at the same time. or you can plug in a tombstone and weld with it and weld off the trailblazer 302 at the same time with no drop in current. why buy 2 gas machines when 302 will run. now if only someone will buy me a 302 of my very own

    What did you mean by a Tombstone Beamwalker?

    Can anyone tell me the max distance from your machine that you can run your SuitCase X-TREME 12VS feeder? Because a 1000' lead would be nice sometimes and I'm going to buy a suitcase soon. I just wanted to know how far I could run it.

    1000'??????? Did you maybe mean 100'? As long as the leads are sufficient in size for the current/distance, you can run a VS feeder as far away as you want. The RC feeders say they have a 75' max. FWIW, at 1000' and 100a, you would need 4/0 or maybe even 1000 cable. Very expensive to say the least.



    The Linc Tombstone is the small red stick machines that Linc has had around forever. They sorta look like a tombstone...hence the name.

    Nope, you heard right. One thousand feet. A buddy of mine has a setup with 1000' of lead and 1000' of ground cable. It's size 4/0 cable. He's gone on vaccation and ows me favors, so he's letting me use his machine for a side job. It's in a difficult to reach and remote location. The job would pay for the feeder several times over and I wish to use the feeder on my new dynasty 350 I'm getting in a couple of months.

    Actually, 1000' of each would be 2000' of lead. I do not know if it would work. At that length, a single 4/0 would be way too small. The voltage loss would be enormous. You never said what amperage/voltage. That makes a difference. The weld engineers would say you would need to run either double or quad cables to carry the voltage maybe. If you are just running a low amperage job, then it may work. The machine voltage would have to be turned way up to compensate for the loss, though.

    The best way is to let the Miller engineer types tell you. 920-735-4505 would get you an answer on the leads and voltage drops.

    If it were my job, I'd be looking at alternatives. That is way too much lead to be running. Weld quality would be in question without the exactly perfect setup.

    Hi Short Arc,
    You should not have any problems at all running that Lincoln MIG off of a Trailblazer. The feeder that you heard had problems running off of the Trailblazer was not nearly the quality of a Miller or Lincoln. Some feeders do require that the frequency be 60 Hz when plugged in (machine in high speed lock), but as far as voltage goes, the Trailblazers is fixed and very stiff providing great power.

    I hope this helps. Have fun with your new Trailblazer!
    Have a great day!

    The genarel rule for compensating for voltage loss is 1 extra amp for every
    10'. So I need 200 extra amps. I would need aproxamitly 150 amps (350 total) to do this job using SMAW, but It's alot of welding and it would take forever. I can't get closer without excivating alot of large trees and I'd like to avoid that. If the suitcase won't work then I'll just do it with stick. (cringe)
    I'm going to buy the feeder for use with my soon to come dynasty 350 anyways, so I geuss I'll give it a try. If it doesn't work I'll just switch to stick.
